Our new CEO

Imelda Connolly as new CEO

Dec. 3, 2020

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Imelda Connolly as Group CEO. Imelda brings a wealth of experience from her finance roles across numerous sectors. Her attention to detail and focus on results are a very welcome addition to the management of Green Belt. Imelda takes control of Green Belt during an extremely challenging period for the forestry industry in Ireland. Initial focus has been to consolidate the business and from this position of strength, we will be much better positioned to continue to deliver strong results to our clients. While achieving an increase in afforestation area is an important element to our business and the industry at large, there are vast opportunities in the forestry sector to be developed. The new leadership team within Green Belt is embracing these opportunities and you will continue to hear updates as these plans progress. Outgoing John O'Reilly is forming a new forestry investment vehicle and details of this will be shared in the new year.
